Large Firebox, can really throw the heat, looks great - nice big glass doors - great views of fire, doors come right off - easy to clean, can get a good eight hours with with good wood fully stocked and damper mostly closed.
Can\'t close the damper all the way or doors will get dirty, have to remember to keep wood away from doors or creosote forms - doors stay pretty clean if you set the damper right and keep wood behind the rim
All around solid stove and looks great - burns clean without catalyst (low maintenance) - would be perfect if the firebox was a pinch larger and it had an ash pan (kind of hard to do with a flush insert of this size so it\'s a trade off). I did a TON of research and this unit really stood out.
